OpenSea Users’ Email Addresses Leaked

Following a data breach, OpenSea, a well-known NFT marketplace with a staggering $13 billion value in January, is alerting customers against email phishing.

The largest NFT marketplace in the world said Wednesday night that a worker at Customer.io, an email vendor hired by OpenSea, used employee access to download and distribute email addresses of OpenSea’s users and newsletter subscribers with an unauthorized third party.

According to statistics gathered by Dune Analytics, an open-source crypto analytics platform, more than 1.8 million customers have made at least one purchase using the Ethereum network on OpenSea.

According to a Customer.io official who talked with TechCrunch, “We think this was caused by the acts of an employee who had role-specific access capabilities that were exploited.” “We do not think the data of any other clients have been hacked, but we are still looking into it. The employee in issue has been suspended pending the outcome of our inquiry and has all access withdrawn.

A target for cyberattacks has formed among cryptocurrency firms as a result of the sector’s exponential expansion and money inflow.
